In the Stacks Episode 80: The Paris Wife by Paula McLain

A video book review of The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. To purchase the book, click here.

"This novel is based on a true account of what life was like for Hadley Richardson, the first wife of Ernest Hemingway. 

"Hadley was eight years older, and she supported her husband and indulged his lifestyle. They lived abroad because it was cheaper, befriending other expats like Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. This book captures how the Lost Generation found themselves in Paris in the 20s, as well as the joie de vivre of the bohemian life as Hemingway writes The Sun Also Rises." -- Michelle Z. from In the Stacks.tv
